United States District Attorney Clarence Reames yesterday wrote his resignation as joint representative of Jackson and Douglas counties to Governor West. The duties of Mr. Reames' new office will make it impossible for him to continue in the old. Unless a special session of the legislature should be called, which is extremely unlikely. The resignation of Mr. Reames will not necessitate the selection of a successor.
Edward Beeson of Talent has sold a 10-acre tract of timber near the divide between Wagner Creek and the Little Appplegate to S.S. Bullis, the owner of the Sterling Mine. Mr. Bullis will at once erect a sawmill and convert a large portion of the timber into rough timber to be used in building the flume which supplies the water to work the Sterling, which is one of the largest placer propositions in Southern Oregon.
The company will also construct a road from the mill to the flume to transport the lumber.— Ashland Tidings
No longer will the Medford Hotel be the only schooner-rigged hotel in the Northwest, for the wireless masts that at present adorn the structure are soon to be removed. This leaves the U.S. Grant Hotel at San Diego the only such hostelry in the world.
Officials of the Federal Wireless Telegraph Company are in Medford to dismantle or rather unmast the hotel, as the wireless apparatus is no longer needed, the large plant near Central Point supplanting it. The latter installation has been found to fulfill all the needs, its superior wire surface rendering the smaller hotel plant unneeded.
